The Beast from the Sea

13And the Dragon stood on the shore of the sea. I saw a Beast rising from the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads—on each horn a crown, and each head inscribed with a blasphemous name.G2532G2476G1909G285G2281G2532G1492G2342G305G1537G2281G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G2768G2532G1909G846G2768G1176G1238G2532G1909G846G2776G3686G988 2The Beast I saw looked like a leopard with bear paws and a lion's mouth. The Dragon turned over its power to it, its throne and great authority.G2532G2342G3739G1492G2258G3664G3917G2532G846G4228G5613G715G2532G846G4750G5613G4750G3023G2532G1404G1325G846G846G1411G2532G846G2362G2532G3173G1849 3One of the Beast's heads looked as if it had been struck a deathblow, and then healed. The whole earth was agog, gaping at the Beast.G2532G1492G3391G846G2776G5613G4969G1519G2288G2532G846G2288G4127G2323G2532G3650G1093G2296G2296G3694G1722G2342 4They worshiped the Dragon who gave the Beast authority, and they worshiped the Beast, exclaiming, "There's never been anything like the Beast! No one would dare go to war with the Beast!"G2532G4352G1404G3739G1325G1849G2342G2532G4352G2342G3004G5101G3664G2342G5101G1410G4170G3326G846 5The Beast had a loud mouth, boastful and blasphemous. It could do anything it wanted for forty-two months.G2532G1325G846G4750G2980G3173G2532G988G2532G1849G1325G846G4160G5062G1417G3376 6It yelled blasphemies against God, blasphemed his Name, blasphemed his Church, especially those already dwelling with God in Heaven.G2532G455G846G4750G1519G988G4314G2316G987G846G3686G2532G846G4633G2532G4637G1722G3772 7It was permitted to make war on God's holy people and conquer them. It held absolute sway over all tribes and peoples, tongues and races.G2532G1325G846G4160G4171G3326G40G2532G3528G846G2532G1849G1325G846G1909G3956G5443G2532G1100G2532G1484 8Everyone on earth whose name was not written from the world's foundation in the slaughtered Lamb's Book of Life will worship the Beast.G2532G3956G2730G1909G1093G4352G846G3739G3686G1125G3756G1125G1722G976G2222G721G4969G575G2602G2889 9Are you listening to this?G1536G2192G3775G191 10They've made their bed; now they must lie in it. Anyone marked for prison goes straight to prison; anyone pulling a sword goes down by the sword. Meanwhile, God's holy people passionately and faithfully stand their ground.G1536G4863G161G5217G1519G161G1536G615G1722G3162G1163G615G1722G3162G5602G2076G5281G2532G4102G40

The Beast from Under the Ground

11I saw another Beast rising out of the ground. It had two horns like a lamb but sounded like a dragon when it spoke.G2532G1492G243G2342G305G1537G1093G2532G2192G1417G2768G3664G721G2532G2980G5613G1404 12It was a puppet of the first Beast, made earth and everyone in it worship the first Beast, which had been healed of its deathblow.G2532G4160G3956G1849G4413G2342G1799G846G2532G4160G1093G2532G2730G1722G846G2443G4352G4413G2342G3739G846G2288G4127G2323 13This second Beast worked magical signs, dazzling people by making fire come down from Heaven.G2532G4160G3173G4592G2532G2443G4160G4442G2597G1537G3772G1519G1093G1799G444 14It used the magic it got from the Beast to dupe earth dwellers, getting them to make an image of the Beast that received the deathblow and lived.G2532G4105G2730G1909G1093G1223G4592G3739G846G1325G4160G1799G2342G3004G2730G1909G1093G4160G1504G2342G3739G2192G4127G3162G2532G2198 15It was able to animate the image of the Beast so that it talked, and then arrange that anyone not worshiping the Beast would be killed.G2532G846G1325G1325G4151G1504G2342G2443G1504G2342G2980G2532G2980G2532G4160G3745G302G4352G3361G4352G1504G2342G2443G615 16It forced all people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to have a mark on the right hand or forehead.G2532G4160G3956G3398G2532G3173G2532G4145G2532G4434G2532G1658G2532G1401G2443G846G1325G5480G1909G846G1188G5495G2228G1909G846G3359 17Without the mark of the name of the Beast or the number of its name, it was impossible to buy or sell anything.G2532G3363G5100G1410G59G2228G4453G1508G2192G5480G2228G3686G2342G2228G706G846G3686 18Solve a riddle: Put your heads together and figure out the meaning of the number of the Beast. It's a human number: six hundred sixty-six.G5602G2076G4678G2192G3563G5585G706G2342G1063G2076G706G444G2532G846G706G5516
